"Accommodate" gets me sometimes. Words with double letters that are pronounced like single letters can be aggravating like that.

Glad you appreciated that little bit of what I threw in there and momentarily patted myself on the back for.

So cB's post in the Happy Thread about Christmas carols reminds me that there are really only a handful of holiday songs I even like. They are as follows:

1. "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" (but only the James Taylor version, because his version is kind of doleful and depressing and that is totally my jam*; any nominally cheerful song that includes a line like "We'll just have to muddle through somehow" was pretty much made for me):

*Bonus, sort-of-Christmas song in the same vein: Dan Fogelberg's "Same Auld Lang Syne" (yes, I have the tastes of a 70-year old)...

2. "Snoopy's Christmas vs. The Red Baron" by The Royal Guardsmen (a song about violent, bloody (cartoon) battle should not be so dang catchy, but it is):

3. "Linus and Lucy" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio (yes, there is a Peanuts theme (pun intended) here--what of it?):

4. "Do You Hear What I Hear" (I guess there are several decent versions, but the one I have heard most on the radio in recent years--and the one of which I have grown most fond--is Carrie Underwood's):

5. "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" (Boss's version, obviously; it's actually one of only two or three Springsteen songs I even like):

6. "Blue Christmas" (yes I know that Elvis was allegedly a racist piece of hillbilly slime but maybe that's actually apocryphal and anyway man oh man could he sing):

7. "Little Saint Nick" by the Beach Boys (side note: I really love the Beach Boys, just in general):

I also really (unironically) enjoy most versions of "Baby It's Cold Outside" while also acknowledging its possible date-rape-y qualities (though others have made mildly compelling arguments to the contrary, so there's that); anyway, here's the Funny or Die send-up, which features the always-charming Casey Wilson:

Oh, and since we were talking about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend up-thread, here's their version of a Christmas song, which I find rather catchy:

Rachel Bloom also has a song called "Chanukah Honey," which is pretty great:

And, finally, who could forget this gem?
